A Certain Uncertainty

from by The Ghost Of Otis

lyrics

A certain uncertainty makes itself known to me, as questions of purpose come to the surface. With all that's at stake, it's my choice to make a fatal incision or to finish the mission. A certain uncertainty makes itself known to me, as questions of purpose ripple the surface. With all that's at stake It's my choice to make a fatal incision or to finish the mission. Blindly follow, or take the reins it's your choice if you're to blame stake your claim, it's your right, you are one with the light when all hope is gone, you'll destroy who you are maybe then you'll see that to live is to die. You have to want to see the light before you can sit down to find it. Then, after time has taken its toll, it all comes at once when you see the ultimate truth. We all have our own satori, our own reason for being. Shit, you could go Hemingway or Hendrix, but who the fuck would want to go Mama Cass? I'd rather go Bukowski and embrace the madness. "We're all sheep and shepherds" as Socrates would say. Well, I'm fine with being a sheep if I can wander towards the greener pastures. You have to ponder it all and do your own thing because all we know is that existence exists. Stake your claim, it's your right, you are one with the light blindly follow or take the reins. It's your choice if you're to blame.
